-sex marriage. the first one is about the defense of marriage act, windsor against the united states. edith windsor and her partner were married in toronto, canada in 2007. spire died in 2009 in new york at a time when new york recognized same-sex marriages that had been performed outside the side. when spire died windsor was required to pay $363,000 in federal estate taxes on her inheritance that she would not have had to pay if federal law had given their relationship the same status that opposite sex marriages get, so a pretty clean case here, an even the obama administration has already said it doesn't think the constitutionality of the defense of marriage act can withstand a legal attack. >>> the second case the court decided to take on is proposition 8, the california ballot initiative adding a state constitutional amendment in 2008 that said only marriage between a man or woman is valid or recognized in california. it overturned a court ruling that said same-sex couples have a right to marry. the cases are likely to be heard in march and decided some time in june. randi? >> joe johns
defense and protection of our ally, turkey. >> reporter: now, secretary of state clinton, this has just crossed the wires, is in brussels, and she says, and i quote: we stand with turkey in the spirit of strong solidarity, and she adds, we stand ready to take the necessary steps for the defense of turkey. syria, we should point out, is believed to have hundreds if not thousands of tons of these chemical agents and also everything several hundred ballistic missiles to deliver them. megyn: james, thank you. a little more context on securing syria's chemical weapons. up to 75,000 troops would be needed to do it. the risk of leakage is high. it took years for the u.s. to destroy its stockpiles, and complicating matters even more, there are reports that the terrorist group hezbollah has set up small training camps near chemical weapons depots in the area. >>> fox news alert now from egypt, a massive protest turning violent outside of the presidential palace, and now we're hearing the egyptian president, muhammad morrissey, has had to leave the palace. police were firing tear gas to stop demo
for right now in these talks. >> bret: ed henry, let's go down on the subject of defense cuts. doug mckelway has some of the specifics. they involve big numbers. >> for the first time since the passage of the budget control act of 2011, the pentagon today announced off camera briefing it's begun preparing for sequest race, and the harm it would do to national security. >> the white house said the mood should not be read as change in commitment to reach an agreement. >> this is act in response. that were is in stark contrast to the defense contractors in october. midst of the presidential campaign to hold off on issuing a 60-day notice of potential layoffs to workers required by law. >> for to us have gone this long a period of time, without making any preparations for it, i think is a gross disservice to the american people. >> for months the pentagon officials have been speaking descriptively about the impact of the cuts. >> face the prospect of budget sequestration. that would be devastating to national security. >> more detailed look comes from the economiststein fuller at george ma
cuts and tax increases but spending cuts particularly in defense. they don't want that. >> explain why what they agree on -- namely that the middle class, 98% of all taxpayers, that their taxes will stay the same, they will not go up. if everyone agrees at least on that, the president says, go ahead and pass that. why not just eliminate the 98% who won't have any changes, those making under $250,000? why not allow that to go forward? why are the republicans resisting on that. >> it could wind up there, wolf. but if the republicans lose that, they believe they kind of lose the leverage that they have. if they sort of give on that, then where's their leverage with the white house? so i think that in the end, wolf, if i had to bet -- and i don't like to bet on these things because they always disappoint -- but i would have to say that the one thing they are all likely to do at some point is to make sure the taxes do not go up on the middle class. but in order to do that, republicans want to get some concessions for that. it seems very easy to do that. democrats have done it in the past. a
the alliance's defense will look like on turkey's border to syria. >> it is designed to detect, intercept, and hit an enemy missile. there are batteries like these stationed in germany. some could be deployed to turkey within weeks. berlin is calling it a legitimate request from a nato ally. >> turkey has already been hit by cross-border mortar fire from syria, so it is understandable that turkey is holon and has asked the alliance for a sign of solidarity. refusing that request would have profound implications for the alliance and send the wrong signal to the regime of president assad. >> nato is warning damascus not to cross a red line, for instance, by using chemical weapons. >> the use of chemical weapons would be completely unacceptable for the whole international community, and if anybody resorts to these terrible weapons, i would expect an immediate reaction. >> apart from germany, the u.s. and netherlands are also expected to supply patriots. both have backed a rapid deployment to their nato allies. >> i think if one of our allies asks us to help with that, i think you need to con

't know if it's the one they claim they captured. moments ago a u.s. defense official told barbara starr the u.s. navy has fully accounted for all unmanned vehicles operating in the middle east region. we have the latest developments now from cairo. a u.s. source says that if the iranians do have something, it is not an actively operating u.s. navy drone. what would that mean? could this actually be a fake? >> it could be. it's not clear right now, but iranian officials have a different story. we don't know when or how this u.s. drone was allegedly captured, but you can be sure iran is going to count this as a big intelligence victory over the u.s. you can also be sure they'll use this to portray the u.s. as the aggressor in the region. that's what iran has done for more than three decades. briefly, let's tell you about the reports from state media in iran. reports say iran captured a drone flying over the northern persian gulf waters after it allegedly flew into iranian airspace. this is a region close to iran's only nuclear power plant. a statement by iran's revolutionary guard said th
defense. when the partition resolution came into being on may 14, 1948, seven arab armies invaded the new jewish state in an effort to prevent its emergence. that effort was also rebuffed. >> what was the size of the jewish state after the vote on the u.n. and they partitioned it off? >> i'll rephrase the answer a little bit. the jewish state that emerged as the state of israel at end of the war of independence, the beginning of 1949, was 30% larger than the jewish state created by the u.n. in november of 1947. israeli forces succeeded in pushing the arabs back. the israelis had conquered no sovereign arab territory, but that 30% would have been part of the palestinian-arab state had that state, in fact, come into being. as it happened, the area that was supposed to have been earmarked for the palestinian state was taken up by israel, by jordan which annexed the west bank. and by egypt which occupied the gaza strip. >> so didn't have gaza, didn't have the west bank. what part of jerusalem did they not have? >> they did not have the eastern part of jerusalem. >> the old city. >> the old ci
